Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the MidSouth
National Weather Service Memphis TN
355 AM CDT Wed Mar 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A warm front will lift north today allowing for winds to
turn around to the south which help warm temperatures into
the lower to mid 80s for locations south of Interstate 40. A
few showers may develop along the front otherwise dry conditions
will prevail today.

A couple of rounds of severe thunderstorms are expected late
tonight into Thursday as a potent upper level low pressure
system moves through the region. Strong southerly winds will
occur ahead of the system on Thursday.
